John Grant has shared two startling new songs taken from his incoming album 'Love Is Magic'.
The record drops on October 12th, with the songwriter also set to play a full UK tour to coincide.
Deciding to share two new previews, John Grant has shared album cuts ‘He’s Got His Mothers Hips’ and ‘Touch & Go’.
Two very distinct pieces of music, ‘He’s Got His Mothers Hips’ is a filthy electroclash number which John explains is “about a cheeseball doing all he can to get into a woman’s pants, making a total ass of himself. It’s a fun song built on disgust.”
‘Touch & Go’ meanwhile was prompted by the life of Chelsea Manning, the US official turned whistleblower who transitioned gender while in prison.
John Grant says: “I was very intrigued by her incredible story... What kind of strength does it take to survive something like that while being decried as a traitor and a pervert for whom death is too good”.
Tune in below.
'Love Is Magic' will be released on October 12th.
